MATH 460 - Optimazation

Credits: Three (3)
Optimization is an essential and important technique for solving problems in many disciplines. Topics covered will be linear programming, infeasible linear programming, unbounded linear programming, pivoting and tableaus, integer programming, solving optimization problems on graphs, shortest path problem, minimum cost perfect matching, understanding the formulation of nonlinear programming, traveling salesmen problem. Modern, real-world examples motivate the theory throughout the course. Students will use MATLAB and work on projects to better understand concepts learned.
